Xeikon expands label production capabilities with 'one-pass' opaque white printing
Innovative label printing technology offers 'no label or label-less look' with a much higher productivity
Transparent - or clear film - selfadhesive labels have emerged as a highly desirable option for companies looking to enhance their brand image and seeking an alternative to glueattached paper labels. "Clearly, an increasing number of brands are recognizing that they can achieve a higher impact on the shelf with this 'no label or labelless look', as it provides a more natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance," said Filip Weymans, Business Development Manager - Labels and Packaging at Xeikon. "Xeikon stands alone as the only digital color label press manufacturer with a 'onepass' opaque white capability. As a result, label converters can now create this look with a much higher productivity on the Xeikon technology. We're happy to offer this added competitive advantage to the market."
All the Xeikon label presses come equipped with five color stations: four for the standard process colors (CMYK) and the fifth station for gamut expansion or spot colors, including its 'onepass' opaque white toner. Xeikon's latest label press, the Xeikon 3500, will be available for demonstrations at Labelexpo Americas 2010 (Booth #6135, Hall F) in Chicago from September 14-16, 2010.
